lyrics

On that dusty wooden floor
We said the things we'd never spoken before
Through the cobwebs on the glass
We saw reflections of a thing that's built to last
And on a mattress on the floor
We saw a ceiling just beginning to crack
And where our younger selves would run
We now were walking hand in hand not looking back.

And in the middle of the night
We fight for honour and for glory and for love.
And there is little hesitation
As we build our little nation from above
This story's just begun

So we took our little boat
Just to see if it could float, but it could fly.
And it took us by surprise
By just how quickly it could rise in the sky
And with little scars or scratches
We had bought a book of matches just to light
And we moved as quick as smoke had spoken
Telling us to flee where we could fight

And in the middle of the night
We fight for honour and for glory and for love.
And there is little hesitation
As we build our little nation from above
This story's just begun
This story's just begun

With little need to speak
We sneak the glances that we need to carry on
You are everything I wanted
Everything I never thought I'd chance upon
So darling take my hand
And dance with me. This night was made for us
And together let us keep on looking up
As we continue to build stars
From the dust.
